These days, establishing a skincare routine can be a little overwhelming. If you feel bombarded by the abundance of products and ingredients being thrown in your direction, you’re not alone. With complicated formulas and scary-sounding ingredients, we don’t blame you if you tend not to venture away from your trusty all-in-one moisturizer. However, it would be a shame not to take advantage of the many benefits that come with an effective skincare regime, both for your complexion and your confidence. That’s why we’ve filtered through the nonsense to share the skincare products that can enhance every routine, all from a doctor-founded brand built on the power of probiotic extracts and superfoods.
Meaning ‘balance’ in Sanskrit, TULA is a skincare brand that is based on ingredients that are both healthy and effective. The brand was founded by Dr. Roshini Raj, a practicing gastroenterologist. Not only this, but she has been studying in the field of the power of probiotics in beauty and wellness for more than 20 years.
Dr. Raj launched TULA in 2014 after seeing the life-changing impact probiotics in a natural diet and in supplements had on her patients’ internal health. Not only were they feeling better, but the complexion of her patients radiated that lit-from-within glow we all strive to achieve.
Applying her medical knowledge to skincare, you can rest assured knowing that each ingredient in the transformative formulas has been included based on thorough research and clinical studies. So, let’s take a look at some of the products tried and tested by our YCB team that will enhance your everyday skincare.
To begin, the first step to healthy skin is clean skin. Cleansing the face is not only just for make-up lovers. It’s an important step to control that build-up of shine and remove the accumulation of dirt and oil after a long day. You might think you’re squeaky clean after using a bar of soap or worse, baby wipes. However, these options can strip away your skin’s healthy oils and throw off its pH balance, resulting in dryness and irritation. A highly-acclaimed cult favourite, TULA’s Purifying Cleanser is a refreshing gel that removes dirt, impurities, and makeup without going overboard (no need to worry about stripping or over-drying). Prebiotics, probiotic extracts and turmeric leave the skin purified, clarified, and balanced to help you start and end the day with a refreshed, radiant looking complexion.
Next, we have serums. Serums work by penetrating nourishing ingredients deep into the skin. What’s more, you can choose a specific serum based on your personal skin concerns. For example, if you’re looking for a solution to quench dry skin, the Triple-Hydra™ Complex day & night serum with hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic and encapsulated squalane pearls work together to plump the look of the skin and deliver moisture on multiple levels. Don’t forget to always apply a serum to the face as your first step, post-cleanse, of course.
To lock all of your serum’s nourishment into place, follow up with a moisturizer. In the words of TULA, “hydrated skin is healthy and happy skin.” Here at YCB, our daily moisturizer of choice goes to the Vitamin C antioxidant brightening moisturizer. The triple play of brightening superstars (Vitamin C, Mandarin Orange, and Tranexamic Acid) help to improve the appearance of a dull and uneven skin tone. After daily use, we found ourselves waking up to skin that emits that illuminated, revived glow. This product is one that now sits firmly on our shelf of skincare staples.
Finally, we have the delicate skin around our eyes. Since this area is usually where the first signs of aging occur, here at YCB, we take our eye treatments very seriously. TULA’s Rose glow and get it: cooling and brightening eye cream exceeds all expectations for reviving the under eyes.
It comes as no surprise that this product is one of their best-sellers, with its unique formula instantly hydrating and firming the appearance of creases or wrinkles. Made with probiotic extracts and superfoods like caffeine, aloe & watermelon, this balm is the cherry on top of an exceptional routine. Our tip? Swipe it across the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose before heading out the door for a glowy, dewy finish.
